Title: Analysis of the applicability of the modified kinematic approximation to describe the off-specular neutron scattering from the surface of micro- and nanostructured objects

Abstract

The applicability of the modified kinematic approximation to describe the off-specular neutron scattering from interfaces between media is analyzed. It is demonstrated that in some cases one can expect not only a qualitative but also a quantitative agreement between the data and the results of experiments and calculations based on more accurate techniques. Diffuse scattering from rough surfaces and thin films with correlated and noncorrelated roughness of the upper and lower interfaces and the neutron diffraction by stripe magnetic domains and magnetic domains with a random size distribution (magnetic roughness) are considered as examples.
